Post: WHAT A SMELLY WORLD!
Posted by NosePlugs, FaceMask...the whole show!!! on 4/13/04
What bugs me is why do people tolerate misery when they
can easily omit the toxic culprits contributing to their
discomfort, and get it the hell out of their
environment... EVERYONE'S environment?
We've got a lot of horrendous scented products going
around out there, and I don't know how ANYONE can stand to
live with themselves wearing that junk! And these are the
same people whining and complaining of their ails and
running off to the doctors every week for a quick 'drug'
fix. What the heck is wrong with everyone??? Don't we know
these toxins are deadening our sense of smell? And that's
why we no longer smell them, and think the air is great?
And contradict those like myself who can smell it and
describe the smell as being horrible? I'm sick and tired
of being told I'm a lunatic, or I'm imagining things, or I
should go see 'what's wrong with me' why I can't
I know a story of a guy ...we'll call him Harvey.
Harvey was a big and strong dude, he ate his veggies every
day, took every supplement there is, got out in the fresh
air and sunshine to exercise for a hour a day, had no
history of any disease in his family (great genes), and he
was feeling 'fine' and frowned on people with MCS or just
people who 'protect their sense of smell.'
So despite the big talk on toxins, Harvey went on using
his scented stuff free or worry, because he claims life is
too short to worry! And it IS short if you don't worry and
take charge of your environment before your environment
takes claim of your health!!!
It wasn't long and sure enough, Harvey's sense of smell
was diminished. What happened was his olfactory nerves
shut down from inhaling overpowering synthetic scents over
a just a short period of time too. Being he couldn't smell
it as us MCS'ers can, he continued to use it as though it
wasn't even there. And you can't blame your ails on
something you don't know is there, can you?
Now, here's a college graduate like Harvey, little did he
care to educate himself on was the fact that what you
can't smell CAN harm you, and how to protect his sense of
smell. So because Harvey is only a 'living thing' ...he
develops a deadly disease from exposing himself freely and
unknowingly to toxins ...and he's like 'what?'
Still insisting that it has nothing to do with the
environment, Harvey blames it on himself! How stupid, what
a shame! If only he had seen the light earlier when other
MCS'ers tried to warn him, rather than degrade them.
BTW: This is a true story folks!!!
